exceptional quality of our carpets is a result of returning
to the basics. Rather than taking shortcuts or using inferior
materials, we begin with using the highest quality fibers
handspun pure Tibetan wool
• top grade Chinese silk
• unbleached cotton
wool is known for its luster, strength and resiliency. Its
high lanolin content makes it very soft and plush.
The hand-carding and hand-spinning process is more costly and labor intensive
than the mechanical method. However, it is less abrasive to the wool; more
of the natural oils (lanolin) are retained; and fewer fibers are broken. This
results in wool with better texture and longevity. Rugs woven with Tibetan
wool only become more beautiful with time. As the rugs are used and walked
on, lanolin is released and a soft sheen naturally develops.
Our goal is to make rugs that equal or surpass the quality and integrity of
the finest antique carpets.
